University of Arizona
Summary
Key issues related to COVID-19 messaging in this talk:
  • How is information about the vaccination, post-vaccine behaviour, and variants being received by the public?
  • Importance of clear and compelling messaging after the vaccine to avoid new Covid-19 surges
  • The public health balancing act between vigilance, epidemic fear, and not wanting to be seen as overreaching when making recommendations
  • Need to balance transparency and positive messaging
  • Health citizenship as the cornerstone of Public Health: Covid-19 renders this transparent, once again
